Question about 2006 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Car won't start.

Won't start. It's been in an accident. Seems like there is no fuel pumping. When I turn key and press gas pedal nothing happens, only starter works... I heard about some kind of a button that resets after an accident and does not allow the fuel to be pumped into an engine. Do you guys know anything about it? thanks

It sounds like you have to push your fuel cut off switch, the switch could under your hood or in by the dash somewhere.have a look at your owners manual it will be in there or you can ask your local dealer where the fuel cut switch is on your car.

How about checking fuel pump operation? You may be due for a replacement. Check for fluctuating pressure and listen for unusual fuel pump noise.

Car won;t start after fillig up the gas task


It might be your fuel pump, if you turn your key to the setting right before your car turns on and you hear nothing, it maybe your fuel pump, if you do hear a buzz then try replacing your fuel filter before it strains your fuel pump

My 2004 cavalier will not turn over without excessive pumping of the gas pedal. Battery, starter and everything else seems to be fine. Is it the pump or something else?


Try this next time you start it. Turn the key to the run position, do not start the engine. Wait 3-5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key right back to the on position and wait for 3-5 seconds. Turn the key off. Repeat the above one more time. Now try to start. If it starts right up you have a fuel supply problem. Either the fuel pump is bleeding off or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. Pumping the pedal is doing nothing besides buying time for the fuel system to pressurize. Post an engine size and I'll help you locate the fuel pressure regulator. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Truck won't start but turns over. Gave the fuel tank two whacks with a hammer and it started right up. Do I need a new fuel pump? This is the second time this has happened, but four months in...


it might be the fuel pump, have someone turn the key on but not start it while you're under the gas tank and listen for the pump to pressurize, if you don't hear anything, you'll need a new fuel pump for sure, but the whacking it with a hammer is most likely a sign that some of the windings in the pump have gone bad.

it seems to me that it was flooded so it had too much gas left in the dash pot don't press the gas at all when starting because as soon as you turn on the key the fuel pump will send the right amount of fuel you need to your system keep track of it and if it continues to do this check your fuel pump

2006 Nissan Sentra Special Edition Start Up Problem


Odd that the owner manual mentions the issue - seems that they are aware of it. Given that car is most likely fuel injected it's generally bad to pump the gas pedal as this floods a fuel injected vehicle (works for older carburated vehicles) I'm assuming you are just barely putting pressure on the pedal. This may be as simple as an idle adjust at the throttle body or it may require programming by the dealer. I'd search and see if there is a recall for this. This may be an issue the dealer is obligated to fix at no cost since it's listed in the manual...
